Subject to the satisfaction or waiver of the conditions of the Offers described in the Offer to Purchase, if the Maximum Purchase Condition (as defined below) is not satisfied with respect to every series of Notes, Chevron will accept Notes for purchase in the order of their respective Acceptance Priority Level specified in the table above (with 1 being the highest Acceptance Priority Level and 23 being the lowest Acceptance Priority Level). It is possible that a series of Notes with a particular Acceptance Priority Level will not be accepted for purchase even if one or more series with a higher or lower Acceptance Priority Level are accepted for purchase.

(2)

For each series of Notes in respect of which a par call date is indicated, the calculation of the applicable Total Consideration has been performed taking into account such par call date.

(3)

The Total Consideration for each series of Notes (such consideration, the “Total Consideration”) payable per each $1,000 principal amount of such series of Notes validly tendered for purchase has been based on the fixed spread specified in the table above (the “Fixed Spread”) for such series of Notes, plus the yield of the specified Reference U.S. Treasury Security for that series as quoted on the Bloomberg reference page “FIT1” as of 2:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on October 8, 2021. See “Description of the Offers—Determination of the Total Consideration.” The Total Consideration does not include the applicable Accrued Coupon Payment as defined below), which will be payable in cash in addition to the applicable Total Consideration.

The Offers will each expire at 5:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on October 8, 2021, unless extended or earlier terminated (such date and time with respect to an Offer, as the same may be extended with respect to such Offer, the “Expiration Date”). Notes may be validly withdrawn at any time at or prior to 5:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on the Expiration Date, unless extended, but not thereafter, unless extended by Chevron.

For Holders who deliver a Notice of Guaranteed Delivery and all other required documentation at or prior to the Expiration Date, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Tender Offer Documents, the deadline to validly tender Notes using the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures will be the second business day after the Expiration Date and is expected to be 5:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on October 13, 2021 (the “Guaranteed Delivery Date”).

The Initial Settlement Date will be the first business day after the Expiration Date and is expected to be October 12, 2021. The Guaranteed Delivery Settlement Date will be the first business day after the Guaranteed Delivery Date and is expected to be October 14, 2021. Each of the Initial Settlement Date and the Guaranteed Delivery Settlement Date is herein referred to as a “Settlement Date.”

Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the Offer to Purchase, Holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase in the Offers will receive the applicable Total Consideration for each $1,000 principal amount of such Notes in cash on the applicable Settlement Date.

In addition to the applicable Total Consideration, Holders whose Notes are accepted for purchase will receive a cash payment equal to the accrued and unpaid interest on such Notes from and including the immediately preceding interest payment date for such Notes to, but excluding, the Initial Settlement Date (the “Accrued Coupon Payment”). Interest will cease to accrue on the Initial Settlement Date for all Notes accepted in the Offers and Holders whose Notes are tendered pursuant to the Guaranteed Delivery Procedures and are accepted for purchase will not receive payment of any interest for the period from and including the Initial Settlement Date.
